ABSTRACT
The seeds of two pea varieties Bohatyr and Junak were separated from the cropstand during the ripening. The biological seed moisture content ranged within 70-10%. In relation to the decreasing seed moisture content the changes of size and weight characteristics, coefficient of restitution after the rebound from wooden, concrete and steel plate, were investigated. The changes of force causing the mechanical seed destruction were measured by using of compression testing device INSTRON 1112 as effected by seed moisture content and loading-force direction.
